New Year, New Home: Give Your Home a Cozy Makeover #BestFeelings

Disclosure 1

One of my favorite things about a new year is the feeling of renewal. It’s the ideal time to not only set new goals for yourself and your family, but to also give your home a bit of a facelift. We kicked off this year with a clean home and even spruced up the areas with some cozy red accessories – perfect for the winter months!

Today, I want to share a few simple tips that will help give your home a new, cozy look to help you achieve your #bestfeelings in 2014.

1. Start with neutral furniture (if possible). This way, it is easy and affordable to quickly change out accessories for a new look.

2. A cozy throw blanket slung over a chair adds warmth and a pop of color.

3. Invest in a couple of new throw pillows to add comfort and color.

4. Think of out-of-the-box ways to use fabric to add color and warmth to a room. This sisal runner on the coffee table adds to our living room decor and continues the red color theme.

5. All of the flooring in our home is hardwood. I love them, but it can be cold. We use area rugs throughout the house to add warmth and delineate the spaces.

6. Nothing says warmth like family pictures.

7. Use accessories to tie your room’s theme together. They are also fun to change seasonally.

8. And, don’t forget a home fragrance scent too! I love Glade® Sense & Spray® Clean Linen for several reasons. First of all, look at it – it is beautifully designed.

You don’t even notice that it’s an air freshener. It blends in with our home decor rather than being an eyesore.

In addition, I love the Clean Linen scent – it is light, fresh and just like the name says – clean. What’s really cool about Glade® Sense & Spray® Automatic Freshener is that it detects when you pass by and instantly releases a burst of fragrance into the air. You can also press the boost button whenever you need a burst of freshener. It’s the perfect meeting of form and function! LOVE!

  4. I plan to redue our steps. We just got done redueing our bathroom floor, toilet and molding.

  5. We’re currently looking at rebuilding our home, so we won’t be making any changes to our current house, except to clean it out. It’s fun thinking of designing the new house though! 🙂

    Our home ideas are mostly outside this year…. my hubby & dad remodeled our house a few years ago (except the masterbath – we do need to work on that!) but we were hit with a tornado (a little over a year ago) and while all the repairs are done… our yard is still a mess. I’d like to add a new flower garden to the front… we need to finish our patio area and hopefully replace the furniture that was destroyed.

  7. I’m refinishing out kitchen table and chairs. It’s old and has been an eyesore for a few years now. I can’t wait for it to be done, so it can bring a smile to my face every day!
